Houses

Scope and Content

Postcard, possibly hand made, with a simple picture of two gable ends of a large house with three chimneystacks, and a view further down the street to another house. With hedges and trees in the left of the picture, and a suggestion of a female figure in the shadow of the house. Printed on plain cream card in black and coloured by hand with colouring pencils. On the reverse is a manuscript message and two postage stamps.

Physical Characteristics and/or Technical Requirements

Some dirty marks to surface, abrasions to all corners. Robust. Production method: printed on card, and coloured by hand with colouring pencils. Possibly hand printed from a linolium cut. The card was not necessarily intended to be a postcard, as the reverse has no printed text, and only a hand drawn division line between the address and message.
